Tyler Dickerson releases debut single

Sunday, February 14, 2010 – After more than seven years playing country fairs and festivals before picking up a regular weekly gig at Tootsie's on Broadway in Nashville, Tyler Dickerson's debut single, Tell Your Sister I'm Single, was just released by Lyric Street Records.

The song goes for adds on Feb. 16. Tell Your Sister I'm Single reveals the story the story of a jilted man who, after giving his partner everything she wanted, is ready to celebrate singledom and find someone who will appreciate everything he has to offer.

Born in Hattiesburg, Miss., the 16-year-old singer discovered his love of music when he made his stage debut at the age of eight. He was discovered while singing and playing five days a week on the Tootsie's stage.

"The first time I sang, the man who books the place was outside and didn't get to hear me," he said oin his Myspace page. "The next Saturday I made sure he did. After I finished my two songs he offered me a spot at Tootsies every Tuesday and Thursday. I was hoping for the weekend but at least I had my foot in the door. Pretty soon I got my wish - I was singing Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays on the front stage."

Dickerson, who co-wrote five songs on his upcoming debut CD, has been hard at work in the studio with producer John Rich recording his debut album. The two hooked up after Dickerson entered a John Rich talent search.

No word on when the CD would be out.

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Womack planned a good night – Lee Ann Womack pretty much summed up where she's at these days in concluding her show with Don Williams "Lord I Hope This Day Is Good." The ever-strong voiced country traditionalist sang, "I don't need fortune and I don't need fame" with the concluding line of the stanza asking the Man upstairs to "plan a good day for me.... »»»
Concert Review: Cantrell continues to satisfy – Laura Cantrell may never be a country star. Not at this stage of her career when she's 50, touring here and there and releasing new music every few years or so. But five albums in, Cantrell continues as a warm, enjoyable and worthy purveyor of her brand of country. That would mean going towards a more traditional side, not rushing the songs... »»»

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno.
